Rating (out of 5):
This special follows Nerd as he attends a Walking Dead museum to look at artifacts from the Walking Dead and hear theories about their origins and what actually happened. Here he meets an elderly Carl who tells him everything he is being told is a lie. Carl then shows Nerd what really happened to the tune of normal Robot Chicken segments.
I knew Robot Chicken was going to parody aspects of the show that many criticize. Some of the segments worked and a few were just trying hard. The voice acting in this one is typical Robot Chicken style. We see some of the regular voices like Seth Green but we also get some of the cast of The Walking Dead making cameos. The voice acting was not the best and a few segments made me thing the cast was just ask to record some audio with no context as to the situation. The segments were fun and really added to the Walking Dead stories. Some were actual parodies of situations that happened in the show while others poked fun at the cast that many fans see in memes. Some of these were really funny while some was trying way too hard to be funny which came across as desperate. The special only runs 22 minutes but even then it feels too long. Finally, the special has plenty of blood and gore. These are done in a comedic fashion in standard Robot Chicken style but they are still fun to look at especially when you put them in context to the story. Overall, The Robot Chicken Walking Dead Special has its moments. Just like with the show TWD, the segments do get a little repetitive but it still delivers a laugh which is all you can ask for.
